Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I was approached by a woman claiming to be a doctor in a parking lot. She offered to perform surgery to make my butt look better, and of course I said yes. Problem is, it doesn't look quite right now and it hurts a lot. Any thoughts? 

Fixaflat Answer: Sometimes fake doctors will prowl parking lots for butt-repair clients, and then use a can of "Fix-a-Flat" (intended to patch flat tires) on their "patients" instead of Botox. Watch out for this. (Turley, Fake Florida Doctor Arrested After Using “Fix-a-Flat” to Augment Woman’s Buttock)

2) Question: I'm on jury duty now and I must say this is nothing like "Law & Order." I’m confused by the presentation of the state’s case and bewildered by what seems to be a lack of preparation on their part. The order of it seems arbitrary. What’s worse, the evidence has no explanation with it and no context. And all of this fumbling around with the evidence! Frankly, all of these things are keeping me from being fully able to evaluate authoritatively the evidence and make a reliable determination of the testimony.  Should I send a letter to the judge?

Answer: Go ahead, but you'll probably be dismissed from the jury due to your “state of agitation.” (New Haven Register, TROUBLE IN THE JURY BOX: Jurors quitting may put Hayes case at risk)

3) Question: I just learned I have heart disease. Ugh. Who can I blame?

Answer: McDonald's? (Consumerist, New Ad Blames McDonald's For Heart Disease)
